NEWARK, New Jersey (WABC) -- The FAA is investigating after two planes apparently clipped wings at Newark Liberty International Airport on Friday morning.

United Airlines said the flight from Newark to Orlando, Florida, was parked at the gate when another much larger United aircraft clipped its wing while being relocated.

The passengers on Flight 2135 to Orlando were able to deplane normally without injury.
One passenger onboard the Orlando-bound flight described the situation after the Boeing 757 had just returned to the gate due to a maintenance issue.

Rebecca Blum said she felt a "jolt ... looked outside and saw as clear as day the wing of a larger plane had clipped our wing. Definitely heard it. Felt it mildly I would say, but more the noise. I think we were thinking, what was that?"

The pilot then came on the overhead speaker and calmly said, "Obviously, our wing has been clipped."

Blum said there was no panic. Passengers then waited a couple hours for another plane to take them at around 11:40 a.m.

Blum has two children, and said she left them a note this morning that she loves them and always comes home. She said she is grateful everyone is OK and she can now continue her journey to see her parents and friends later Friday.

The FAA released the following statement:

"The United Flight 2135 was struck by a Boeing 787, a Dreamliner, that arrived from Johannesburg, South Africa earlier in the morning. The much larger plane was being relocated by a tug when it made contact with the smaller Boeing 757, parked at the gate."

I've attached the audio

A PSA Airlines Canadair CRJ-700 on behalf of American Airlines, registration N702PS performing flight AA-5359 from Jackson,MS to Washington National,DC (USA) with 51 people on board, was climbing out of Jackson's runway 34R when the crew stopped the climb at 13,000 feet declaring Mayday Mayday reporting they were losing fuel. The crew queried for any closer airport than Jackson, however, Jackson was the closest. The crew requested to go straight back to the airport taking as close as a final possible and advising they were keeping the aircraft higher. During the descent the crew advised the fuel quantity stabilized, but they were not taking any chances. The aircraft landed safely on runway 16L about 19 minutes after departure and taxied to the apron.

The aircraft remained on the ground for about 7 hours, then positioned to Norfolk,VA (USA), remained on the ground in Norfolk for another 7.5 hours and resumed service.

But wouldnt the typical arrival procedure contain multiple crossing restrictions? I cant imagine they would allow for a continuous descent profile in many cases?

They do. So when ATC gives "Descend via" for the arrival, that authorizes the pilot to descend via the full arrival, adhering to all crossing and speed restrictions as depicted on the chart. Any modification to that call will not only make the pilot comply with the modification, but would cancel the arrival altogether. ATC would have to give another "descend via" to have them continue the arrival.
